romney. and joy reed, msnbc contributor and managing editor for thegrio.com. thanks for both of you for being here tonight. >> good to be here. >> steve, you write about this today. what do you make of christie? >> part is christie being christie to a certain extent. some people were trying to figure out if romney would put him on the ticket. this is one of the reasons that was never a serious possibility because he had-s his own man and they can't control him. but i think probably the best way to understand this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned to win but it's never easy being a republican in new jersey. one of the strategies christie has had to appeal to nonrepublican voters in new jersey in the last year is speaking out and publicizing alliances with democrats which creates the image of the bipartisan guy who won't get bogged down in petty republican p
both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a surprise but it seem like we're in a phase where behind the romney smile is a very rough campaign? >> absolutely. we've got a few days left. we have entered the phase of the campaign where time and again you can go there and get the little bit of an edge and radio ads that are shocking, billboards that are deceptive, voter suppression, voter intimidation, whatever it takes. >> voter subpoena prek, voter intimidation. but linking the president to hugo chavez and say we don't believe in god we trust? this is way beyond the boundaries. >> you have to hit people in the gut. you're not appealing to reason at this point, if you ever are, in a presidential campaign. you've got to get them in a gut level to get your allies all fired up and to, you know, hopefully get anybody still on the fence to really just kind of find some way to get through to them and get them over to your side. >> richard, what does this say? the politics of desperation, what does it say about romney? does it mean he and his team is worried? >> he's never had an
it throws both campaigns off a bit but it throws mitt romney off more because he has less opportunity now to get his message out because people are preoccupied with this huge weather event. >> richard, the most campaigns are frozen. >> yep. >> who loses the most? cynthia says it's romney. what do you say? >> look, i don't think either of them planned for this. certainly in terms of the romney campaign, early voting takes some impact but in virginia it's not the same rules. in florida there's not that much impact at all. so i don't know that it's that much of an interruption but in terms of the optics of it, you know, when you're a challenger, you don't have anything to do except campaign nour flying around and when you do so you look more commanding and presidential. so i think it's a benefit for a president as long as the response actually works. if it doesn't work, you've got a whole other situation going on in your hands. if we carry on this track, the president is in a slightly better position but we'll be back to this in a very short amount of time. >> yes. and as one who lives in ne
-- they rolled the dice here because the romney team feels they have to win in ohio and it would be interesting if this turns out that they don't. >> connie and dana, thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you, reverend. >>> coming up, from intimidating billboards to anti-obama text messages, they are all in to smear the president. we'll tell you who is behind all of this. >>> plus, more on the incredible story developing and why is mitt romney campaigning poll watchers to deceive election officials? we have news tonight. stay with us.

's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. >>> in these frantic hours of the campaign, both candidates are using every last opportunity to get their pictures to the voters. the president has hit seven battleground states from colorado to florida. mitt romney will also be in seven battleground states to lay out his closing arguments. so what's going on behind the scenes in these final days? what's the real story of the campaign here at the end? joining me now is a man who has been on the inside, bob shrum. he was a former aide to the kerry campaign. his article outlines all of the mistakes that could spell defeat for him on election day. bob, thanks for your time. >> good to be here. >> inside the romney campaign there's a desperate attempt to find a route to 270. that's why they are, for example, scheduled a rally in pennsylvania. pennsylvania has been fool's gold for years. john mccain went there at the end of the campaign last time. george w. bush went there at the end of the campaign in 2004. in the end, i think, they can't crack ohio and because they can't crack ohio, they've got t
